Project: Otam 85 GTS

Otam with more than sixty years of power boating experience is proud to present its new 85 GTS, the result of the Italian yard’s research after the success of its iconic 80 HT.  The project was developed with long-standing partner Umberto Tagliavini’s Marine Design and in collaboration with Niccolò Pasquini and Alessio Riccobaldi from R+P Architecture studio, the latter already working on further Otam Custom Range models. For the first time, the owner of an OTAM may choose between several configurations for the bow area, including the possibility of a lounge and coffee table or a spacious sunbathing area.  The result is a flexible Open that offers the maximum in comfort both while underway and at anchor.  The special supercar inspired gullwing hardtop, with a structure based on a central spine, while underway with the wings lowered give a sense of complete protection with very little turbulence, and when at anchor all you have to do is raise the two wings to feel in close contact with surrounding nature.  This sensation is amplified by the open transom that allows for easy and safe access to the water and by the bow area that provides another place to use as either a dining or sunbathing zone, always with the maximum level of comfort and privacy. Confirming the intention of Otam not to limit either the aesthetic or technical customization possibilities, the yard lets the owner choose all the details and customize in pure Otam DNA every part of the boat, from the interior layout to every single particular.  Comfort is linked to the sportive character inherent in Otam’s DNA with the two propulsion options: twin 2600hp MTU engines for a top speed of 45 knots and a 35 knot cruising speed, or twin 1925hp CAT engines for a top speed of 38 knots and a cruising speed of 32 knots. Both options use Arneson surface drive propulsion for the best in efficiency.
